I really dislike these sorts of things. The semantics for unix filesystems
are very well defined, and gnome-vfs has much weaker semantics. You also
have to be root to mount filesystems, and you are loading a non-supported
filesystem module in the kernel that could easily destabilize the whole
I don't even know what you mean when you say gnome-vfs should use this. Do
you think gnome-vfs should automatically mount filesystems when you
browse e.g. smb:?
If you want to run lufs on your machine, that is entierly up to you, and
as long as lufs works gnome should have no problem accessing files on it.
